I have always enjoyed dining at Morimoto's for their Omakase, especially their seasonal Omakase. Check this place out for a casual and memorable experience.

As usual, the food was exquisite. My Ramen Chicken noodle soup was superb and the nightly special featuring seasonal seafood was a huge bargain at $29.00
Always a pleasure to dine there.

There is no question that the food here is fantastic from the quality and presentation. It is a very cool and trendy spot to eat with the decor adding to this feel - it did feel like a food hall though with the long shape of the restaurant and tables lined up either side and booths in the middle.

Our experience was mixed as the serves did do their best to make our experience better from the troubles we were having however it did leave a bad taste in our mouths.

I ordered the 4 oz. NY Strip certified Kobe beef only to be told 10 mins later they didn’t have any so I went for the 5 oz. Japanese Snow Beef but again after waiting they didn’t have any so has to go for the 12 oz. Australian Strip which was good, they did give us 2oz Kobe beef they had left over and presented it like it would of been off their taster menu which was amazing. Also did try to order Roasted Maitake Mushroom but the server then had to come back as he found out it wasn’t gluten free. The messing around with what we ordered and delay in getting told that the food was no longer available was disappointing.

If you go on a busy evening make sure you order quickly as it may be gone

Overall The food was great but wouldn’t rush to go back.

The chefs omakase was delicious, but definitely not worth the price, especially with the Kobe beef addition. I was hoping to interact with the chefs more, as with omakase style, but I didn’t get that. I think if I were to return, I would get a sushi platter, as that looked much more bang for my buck

Great choice for a special dinner. We had omikase and drinks and spent a lot of money, but had a splendid evening with fine food and good conversation. You can dine ala carte, spend less and always have a wonderful meal.

I took my wife here for her 50th birthday along with my son. The food was amazing, service was impeccable (thanks Rich), and overall experience was highly memorable. It was the first time I had Snow Cow and it was definitely worth it to try. We ordered the omakase and marveled at each dish that came out. The flavours and presentation were exquisite and lives up to the reputation of Morimoto. The pace was just right and we left very satisfied.

Everything about Morimoto was first rate. It was our first time dining there. The food, service (Luis), and ambience were excellent. It was my wife’s first time in a Japanese restaurant. And, she wants to return, soon.

Completely overpriced and overrated.. Crazy how places have built popularity by name alone.. This is the case with Morimoto.. It would rank 18th on my top 20 sushi restaurants..

This place is wonderful... If you can afford it. I tried a very large portion of the menu it was delicious, there were only two options on the menu that I was not 100% satisfied with and of those two one was due to my dislike for wasabi, everything else was amazing. I even had some dishes with wasabi on them in which I thoroughly enjoyed.
